Deathly Hallows — No spoilers, I promise

Filed under: Uncategorized — jenniferelbaum @ 10:33 am

I don’t usually blog about the books I read, because quite frankly, if I’m disappointed in a book, I don’t feel like it’s my place to slam an author, but JK Rowling has enough money that I don’t really think I’ll be ruining her career.

 I read the latest Harry Potter book and I was…disappointed. (Yes, I know I seem to be in a minority.  So far, I’ve only spoken with people who thought it was great.)

It wasn’t a bad book. It just wasn’t one of her best books imho.

I’d pretty much already guessed who would die. I knew where the story would end. I’d guessed what the “revelation” about a certain character would be. I could care less about the revelations made about another character (beat a dead horse, why don’t you JK?)

And quite frankly I’m fairly pissed that my pet peeve with the books was never addressed.

So after all this time waiting, I’m feeling rather let down. 😦

  1. I actually enjoyed the book. Yes, I had guessed what would happened, but I kept turning the page to see if Harry was going to get killed. Then when he did, and didn’t, I thought it an interesting twist that after everything he’d learned, the skills he’d mastered, it came down to him being willing to sacrifice his life for those he loved and knew.
